Frustration at treatment !!

Postby Ruthie 71 » Mon May 16, 2016 10:52 am

Have been diagnosed for over 20 years whilst trying for a baby .. I am lucky as I had a child .. Symptoms mild but recently it has come back stronger .. Burst cysts .. Mood swings ... Weight gain ... Basically had enough .. Dr so unhelpful .. Won't prescribe mini pill or metformin .. Just the normal bloods and a scan .. I feel so low and just want to feel normal again !!

Ask to be referred to an endocrinologist as it is their area and not a GP. Look also at the NICE guidelines as it advises what you should expect treatment wise when it comes to the NHS and PCOS
